Watercolors | 4

Now I have a 'new' color palette, it's time to see what it is capable of.
By doing some color excercises I want to get to know my palette, so I can be in control of it. The previous palette I used, I was usually mixing 'mud' colors. With this palette this will hopefully change.

First color study: GRAYS.

Here's a study on what Jeanne Dobie in her book calls 'Mouse Power'.
Mixing the 3 primairies produces a neutral gray. Adding blue, red or yellow produces various luminous grays. The color gem inside the squares is the complement of the dominant color in each gray.

And some saturated grays.
